2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Wilson! You might know me. Who will have a bigger impact in the long run between ex-Giant prospect Phil Bickford and current Giant prospect Tyler Beede? Thank you?
(WBG from Philippines)
I like Beede by a decent margin there. Was a fan of his arsenal's depth last year, and reports I've seen from this season suggest he's started to implement the physical adjustments he needed while maturing with his sequencing and game management. I think he's a relatively high floor guy rounding out a quality a rotation. I didn't really see it in my brief looks at Bickford, and I know David Lee wasn't convinced earlier this spring at Augusta either. The delivery's kind of stiff and he's got a low drop that discounts his height and leaves the fastball wanting for plane. That's okay to a degree, as he's got deception and some late oomph to get over barrels. But it leaves a thinner margin for error, and he needs to be pretty fine consistently with it because the secondaries weren't all that impressive. Slider showed average movement but he struggled to command it, change didn't do a ton. I'd like him better as a two-pitch guy where the FB could hopefully gain another tick or three over the 89-92 range I saw him sitting. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Grant, Have you seen Phil Bickford and what is your opinion of him and his chances of staying in the rotation.
(Arthur from Vegas)
I have not, but fortunately we have a recent eyewitness report on him here. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=370 (Grant Jones)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What have you been hearing about Phil Bickford so far this year? Not walking many and striking quite a few out in Low-A.
(Mike from CA)
Much more good than bad. Still needs to show more consistency with the slider and the change is hit and miss, but more good than bad is good. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-05-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks James. Could you rank these Low-A starters in terms of ceiling? Cody Reed (Ariz), Mitch Keller and Phil Bickford...
(Keith from Farmington, CT)
Lots of questions on the D-Backs Cody Reed so far so I'll start off by saying I think he's legit and will touch on him in more depth later on but give me Bickford, Reed, then Keller. (James Fisher)
2016-04-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Phil Bickford a stud or scrub?
(Victor from San Fran)
No. I think he's inbetween those. He had a fantastic debut, though, and his upside might be the highest of any of the Giants pitchers, including Tyler Beede. (Christopher Crawford)
